OBD -- check Amazon for "ELM 327" bluetooth units. You should be able to get one for <$20. If I remember correctly, you want one that is version 1.4 or newer, but you might want to double-check that (been awhile since I bought one). I would buy from Amazon and worst case, if it doesn't work, return it. Though I had no problems with mine and I just picked a random one from Amazon

Problem is that if you use an Iphone it needs to be a WIFI OBD reader. Usually those are 75+. I went with Kiwi since it was available at Fry's, much easier to return.

Bluetooth works for Android phones.
